Deputy Prime Minister Dvorkovich Warned of Arms Race if Romney Wins American Election

Read n’ heed… not only is voting for the Prez more moral this year, it’s more in your cold self-interest… think on that.


Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said that a victory by the Republican candidate Mitt Romney in the American presidential election could lead to a new arms race spiral as Romney considers Russia to be America’s “Number One geopolitical foe”. On Saturday, Dvorkovich said at the Yalta European Strategy forum, “If Mr Romney wins the presidential election, the USA revert to a time when the bulk of revenues went to a small group of people and military programmes got the highest priority. Unfortunately, military programmes would play an increasing role in Russia as well, if this happens”. Dvorkovich reiterated, though, that Russia was ready to work with any person elected by the American people as their president. With about seven weeks left before Election Day, incumbent President Barack Obama, nominated by Democrats to run for a second term in office, has a small lead over Romney nationwide, but he enjoys a significant advantage in the Electoral College, according to public opinion polls.

Medvedev Sez that Military Interventionism May Lead To Outright War


On Thursday, Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev observed at an international legal forum in St Petersburg that military intervention in the sovereign affairs of other states could lead to outright war, which could go nuclear, saying, “The introduction of all sorts of collective sanctions bypassing international institutions doesn’t improve the situation in the world, whilst reckless military operations in foreign states usually end up with radicals coming to power. At some point, such actions, which undermine state sovereignty, may well end in a full-blown regional war and even… I’m not trying to spook anyone… the use of nuclear weapons”.

Medvedev went on to say, ahead of a G8 summit, that the right of nations to choose their own path of development is a universal value, referring to the situation in Syria and the Middle East as a whole. Earlier on Thursday, a Kremlin aide said the G8 summit meeting outside Washington on 18-19 May would begin with talks on Syria and the Iranian nuclear problem. Medvedev, who’s attending the meeting instead of President Vladimir Putin, will hold bilateral talks with US President Barack Obama, Arkady Dvorkovich said.

Editor’s Note:

Willard Romney is a jingoistic sabre-rattler. He was a bully in prep school; he’s a bully now (only he’s smoother about it). So are King Rush and the rest of the demented Republican punditocracy. Every time the USA attacks another country, the risk of a general war is there. There IS a way to minimise this threat… vote for President Obama in November… don’t be fooled by the loud noise on the internet. The ‘net is a megaphone, making a loud small pack of yahoos sound like a horde. We outnumber them… and we outsmart them. VOTE… and we’ll keep the lying greedy bastards out. It’s your DUTY…
